ORLANDO Fla., Aug. 2, 2023 – ThreatLocker, a pioneer in endpoint protect technologies, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Danny Jenkins, CEO and Co-founder, to its exclusive 2023 Top 100 Executives list. This annual list honors the passionate and hard-working technology executives who are supporting, growing, and redefining the IT channel. The executives named to this list have demonstrated their commitment to the channel and proved themselves as exemplary leaders through their innovative channel-focused strategies and initiatives. 

In 2017, Danny Jenkins saw a gap in the security market for proactively defending against threats. A cybersecurity veteran, Jenkins co-founded ThreatLocker, a Zero Trust endpoint protection platform that would assist channel members in hardening their environments by limiting what can run in an environment. 

"Being recognized on CRN's Top 100 Executives list as a top innovator is a testament to the collaborative efforts of our exceptional team and the positive change we've been reinforcing in the industry." Said Danny Jenkins, CEO and co-founder of ThreatLocker. “ThreatLocker has disrupted the market with its vast array of proactive cybersecurity measures and will continue to inspire MSPs to safeguard the digital world.”  

Their commitment to excellence and innovation has driven us to new heights. This prestigious honor reaffirms our dedication to advancing cybersecurity and empowering businesses with a Zero Trust approach. We are grateful for the recognition and inspired to continue leading the charge in safeguarding the digital world." 

CRN’s Top 100 Executives list acknowledges the tech visionaries who are setting the pace for the rest of the IT industry. It honors executives across four sub-categories: the 25 Most Influential Executives, Top 25 Channel Sales Leaders, Top 25 Innovators and Top 25 Disrupters, each with its own set of strengths that impact the IT channel. 

“It is the bold and decisive who continue to dominate our annual list in the technology world.” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “Those featured on our CRN 2023 Top 100 Executives list demonstrate perpetual commitment to business growth, partner success, and IT innovation and aren’t afraid to push boundaries – even in a time of economic uncertainty.”
